    That's odd. I thought laws on SSM already existed before the courts even got involved? What the hell do I know.

    You act like a typical liberal. You disdain the people you profess to support.

    No. They are cancelling/rendering useless laws that violate the US Constitution. As they should. How else would they stop a law that said "no person within this state can own a gun, ever" or "no person within this state can talk bad about the US President or they face 20 years in prison"? Those laws can only be ruled violations of the Constitution by the Courts even if every person can see that they clearly violate the US Constitution.

    No but they are supposed to protect people's civil rights. And that's what they're doing....not letting the majority discriminate against a minority.

    Laws are supposed to be passed in congress not by judges.

    And they do happen very slowly, relatively speaking. Same sex couples have been around since the beginning of humans and yet they are just now being recognized as deserving of the right to marry. In fact, it has moved so slow that even after desegregation, those identified as homosexual could be put into jail or involuntarily committed even for simply being homosexual. We just got rid of laws banning sodomy that occurred in a person's private home in 2003. I'd say that is extremely slow. And these court cases are even going to take another couple of years (in all likelihood). That's slow enough.

    The fact that you're so incredibly loose with the Nazi analogy automatically renders your opinion utterly null and void. It speaks to

    (A) the fact you're too uneducated to come up with a novel comparison (the Armenian genocide, perhaps?).

    (B) a profound ignorance of the difference between individuals being freed to do something they couldn't before, as in gay marriage, and a mass slaughter of millions for the crime of their ethnicity.

    (C) a persecution complex - indeed, a desire to be persecuted, as your Good Book tells you you will be in the end-times and as you surely wish to be, as if somehow being persecuted ("just like the Jews!") would prove you correct.

    You can't pass a law against a right that is clearly written out in the constitution, gay marriage does not rise to that level.

    What a bigoted remark that might be... wouldn't you agree? Your point is that you do not really have a point...just some mixed up distorted jumble of jibber jabber resembling your inner lopsided feelings? The caricatures that you have created, assisted no doubt by such noteworthy news journalism espoused by the likes of cable channel's MSLSD, reflect more on you than any reality.
